One of my absolute favourite make-up brands, Illamasqua, have started a really important campaign called FIGHT FOR A FAIR BEAUTY PRICE.
Basically, they are making a stand against the global giants of cosmetics, who force Australian customers to pay up to 61% more than UK prices. It is entirely unjust that someone in the UK pays just $24 for a lipstick, while a man or woman in Australia has to pay $40 for exactly the same product.
I have always known that Australian cosmetics prices were higher, but now that I really think about it, I wonder why hasn't anyone made a stand against this sooner? It is no surprise to me, however, that it is Illamasqua to take the initiative on this - they are always pushing the boundaries and surprising us.
